    Thanks for posting! :thumb: Can you make a VM next time with Windows 7 or Windows 8 ? XP is too ... ancient.

    Why does Windows Defender on Windows 8 is still at 4.0 version? I thought 4.2 is officially released?

    Because MS wants this - they are different programs and have different program update cycle. Only MSE is 4.2 now, all other MS security products (including the business System Center 2010 Endpoint Protection and Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010) are not updated.

    They share the antimalware engine which is the most important.

    hey does anyone know why my windows defender is always two or three updates behind.Now 1.145.549.0 I think latest is 560.0...manual update says signatures up to date. Every morning I do a manual update, then it will download the new updates..So is it like one update per day,automatic or manual??

    Latest update is 1.145.566.0 - I manually update and find it's mostly twice a day but sometimes only once.

    It seems you are wrong and jack is correct.

    My Windows Defender shows the same as your but MMPC has produced one and more updates further:

    Windows Defender for Windows 8 is updated to version 4.2.223.0 if you install update KB2781197 (released today via Windows Update).

    As I can remember,Microsoft suspicous file submission service was really great some time, It gave you two feedback mails.
    the first one was the report of your submission(right after uploading) and the secone one was the analysis result which was very informative.

    but now,the second one is gone and you don't know what has happend to your file.

    I don't know why the analysis is not sent,does anyone have any idea?

    You may also try posting your question on the MS Community forum if you don't get response here.

    you are right
    I got the same answer in MS community

    If you received a sample submission ID with the first email, sign-in to the MMPC website, click on the downward arrow besides your account name to open the menu, and select the 'View Sample Submissions' option.
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...feedback/71e8ba8e-2b68-4b28-b787-02d221a12e52


    In the past they sent results to your email(no matter which server) but now you have to Sign In in irder to see the analysis

    What a load of cack these tests are.!
    What malware was actually used to test mse.?

    For goodness sake i have used windows computers for the past 6 years and only come across about half a dozen malwares in a real world scenario.

    And yet these (tests) bombard a chosen av with thousands of malicious files and then rate it good or bad.What a load of utter rubbish and im fed up with these financially motivated sham tests.

    The only threat that is truly dangerous is the one between the computer and the chair and if computer users are coming across malware which even surmounts to a double figured number then they need to re-assess their computer usage.

    That is all.

    I think tests are tests therefore extreme situations are meant to check how quick new definitions are implemented along with heuristics and other tools.

    I agree with you that real world scenarios are most of the time benign, and the FUD (Fear-Uncertainty-Doubt) created by the AV industry is good for their business. It is amazing how important it is for some people to have a particular AV for their peace of mind.

    Considering that we are talking about software that is not productive and sometimes even slows down systems and creates conflicts, one would expect a tepid interest in it, instead it becomes the first priority for a lot of security oriented users. By the way I have Windows Defender active on my Windows 8 machine with Avira on demand. I often wonder why should I change if I haven't been infected?

    How true! And many of us, myself included, buy in because it is better to err on the side of caution. In general, I don't have very good luck. So I try hard not to tempt fate, so until something proven to be better comes along to replace the AV as a primary security solution, I guess I'll continue down the AV road. And pay close attention to those tests. :D

    Hi, I want to know if MSE/windows 8 windows defender detect's policeware/commercial keyloggers stuff like that. The reason I wanted to know is because what if a hacker gets ahold of this malware and the antimalware/antivirus does not detect it. I do NOT do anything illegal on the internet, I just wanted to know because I am really concerned about my security and I want to be as protected as possible.
    Thanks, Austin
